“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… many wonders and miraculous signs were done… All the believers were together and had everything in common. they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts. Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” — Acts 2:42-47

Over the next two Sunday's we'll be studying Jesus' words in John 15 to learn how.
